The Second Annual EISA Symposium, 2007


In Search of Sustainable Democratic Governance for Africa: Does Democracy Work for Developing Countries?

Johannesburg, South Africa

7 - 9 November 2007


Concept Note


The primary goal of the 2007 Symposium was to investigate how democracies lead to development of social policies that redress the scourge of poverty. We aim to establish the extent to which democratic governance in Africa is sustainable or reversible. The 2007 EISA Annual Symposium follows the inaugural Symposium (November 2006, Johannesburg) that focused on the theme Challenges for Democratic Governance and Human Development in Africa.
